Some homes are exactly what you’d expect while others surprise and amaze you from the very first moment of your visit. Should you seek the latter, The Susan Bridge Team at J Barrett & Company is pleased to introduce you to this stunning property in Beverly Farms. Though it has been thoughtfully updated for easy 21st century living, this remarkable manse, which lists for $1,450,000, is a gorgeous reflection of the craftsmanship of days gone by.

“Despite its grandeur, I get this very warm feeling the minute I step into this home,” says Susan Bridge. “It’s the kind of house that takes you back to those holidays and family gatherings of yesteryear. It is a house loaded with elegant and charming features like the Dutch door and coat pegs in the foyer to the custom woodwork and leaded glass in the formal rooms. Nothing rivals this extraordinary home in terms of character and convenience.”

A proper turn-of-the century wrap-around porch leads the way to an equally impressive interior filled with notable features such as raised paneling, crown moldings, original antique hardware, and two grand staircases. On the main level, find a striking dining room with a stone fireplace and a built-in leaded china cabinet, an elegant living room with fireplace and detailed woodwork, and a light-filled office with custom built-ins. Boasting a butler’s pantry with prep area, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a double wall oven, and an over-sized center island, the updated kitchen opens effortlessly to a spacious family room complete with decorative wainscoting and wet bar.

The second level offers a most convenient laundry room, two full baths, three spacious bedrooms and a lavish fireplaced master suite with a large walk-in closet and a generous sitting area. Ascend the stairs to the third floor to find surprise after surprise – four bonus rooms currently used as a secluded reading nook, a crafting room, a workout room and a secret art room concealed behind a moveable book shelf. Should there be a need for more space; a sprawling basement brings three finished rooms with access to the two-car garage.

Additional enhancements include central air and vac, all brand new windows on the main level, a first floor powder room, an outdoor shower, and a large backyard-facing deck. While this remarkable home is sited at the end of a cul-de-sac for privacy, it is also close to shopping and dining, the area’s finest schools, desirable West Beach, and the commuter rail station.

“This home has so many unique features from back in the day, with every single room having something to talk about,” says Bridge. “With each corner you turn, you can’t help but be amazed. I am truly honored to present such a stately and majestic property.”
